Registration is now open for the International Quilt Study Center & Museum’s Biennial Symposium, “Making and Mending: Quilts for Causes and Commemoration” April 16-18, 2015, at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Speakers Erika Doss (University of Notre Dame), Lynn Setterington (Manchester Metropolitan University), Madelyn Shaw and Victoria Findlay Wolfe will elaborate on the many ways quiltmakers past and current have made quilts to support causes and commemorate their lives.
On February 21, 2017, H-Net Council voted to de-commission H-Quilts. The network has been largely unused and ran without editors an extended period of time. Rather than continuing attempts to revive an unused network, we suggest prospective subscribers join our much larger and active networks in related fields. These might include H-Material-Culture, H-Amstdy, H-Folk and many more of our 180+ networks.
Feel free to contact me with any questions about this decommissioning.
All the best,
H-Net Vice-President for Networks
